HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
There's still no word on when authorities in Florida will extradite Daniel Proctor to face murder charges for the death of his ex-wife.
Earlier this week, Lee County authorities obtained a murder arrest warrant for Proctor.
He is currently serving a life sentence for grand theft at the Limestone Correctional Center.
Proctor is accused of killing his ex-wife, Amy Patterson, in Florida in 2011.
Patterson's mother Ladonna Salehi said her family can finally feel some closure.
"The complete closure will come for her and that's what we are looking for now is justice," Salehi said. "We want him to actually get charged with her murder since he wasn't actually charged up here."
Salehi said she feels a piece of her has been missing since her daughter's disappearance in 2011.
"I miss her coming through that door and saying 'hey mom' and she always had this laugh that was contagious," she said.
Salehi said she doesn't know when Proctor will go before a Florida judge and jury for what he's accused of doing to Amy, but she's confident things will work out in Amy's favor.
"I have full confidence that when the jury sees all the evidence that they have and the circumstances surrounding the situation that he will be found guilty," she said. "Most people think closure is when you have a funeral, but with any kind of situation like this, when you have a murder and you have a trial that's got to come up, there's really no closure until you feel that justice has really been served."
Salehi said she does plan to travel to Florida for Proctor's sentencing when it happens.
